It’s Christmas at MDUC this week!

Hi Everyone,

Grab your favouite Christmas Maggie this week and join us at Magnoloia Down Under Challenges with our super easy and most appropriate – Christmas Theme – Challenge!

I coloured Tilda with cross stitch heart using the no lines technique again….Β  πŸ™‚ And I shared the progress as I coloured on Facebook via Instagram.

After I finished colouring her up, I made a nice simple card and pulled out the Christmas borders Chipboard again, coloured them with pencils and coated the cherries with glossy accents.


Here’s a little gallery sharing the step by step photos. (If the gallery hangs as it loads the images – try clicking the ‘arrow’ buttons to kick start it)


And here she is up close


The creations made by my fellow DT friends are as per usualy stunning!! So make sure you pop over to take a looksee!

Thanks so much for popping by!

Big Aussie Squeezes!



Don’t forget I have MEGA CANDY here!!

    Zoe, Just stunning!!!
    Question: What type of strokes do you do and do you always do your background first?
    Hugs, Patricia

    Hi Zoe dear!
    You are so kind to share your colouring techniques. Your card is beautiful. I love how you did her little boots. They look like a soft furry cloth. Your shading and folds are beautiful.
    Have a wonderful Christmas Zoe.
    I am going go and do some practice from your neat Tute.
    Hugs Maz
